Music - Bands, Sat 13 Jul 2019




Malcolm Middleton is back, again, with his seven-hundredth studio album Bananas, this time on the much beloved Triassic Tusk Records. The guitarist and songwriter is best known for his work with Aidan Moffat in Scottish rock legends Arab Strap, as well as for his string of Dpr$$n-core smash hit singles “F*** It, I Love You”, “We’re All Going To D**” and “Balled Of F*** All”.

On Bananas, Malcolm has teamed up with the acclaimed not-jazz trio Jeansy, Jones & Smillie (David Jeans Drums, Stevie Jones Double Bass and Graeme Smillie Piano) to produce an album that is both scathing and nice. With new songs like “Buzz Lightyear Helmet”, “Love Is a Momentary Lapse in Self-Loathing” and “P*** Off Life, Just K*** Me Now” (that last one is a joke), Malcolm continues to report back from the depths of the everyday whilst attempting to monetise hell. Adding a dose of saccharine to the mix, the Samaratinesque choir of Kenny Anderson (King Creosote), Jenny Reeve (Bdy_Prts) and Dan Wilson (Withered Hand) courageously manage to pull Malcolm back from the brink of many a teetering jont just as he’s about to disappear up his own proverbial.

Recorded and Mixed by Paul Savage (Mogwai, Delgados, Suckle, Magoo) at Chem19 Studios in Glasgow, the album contains “melodic bits and interesting lyrics” – Stephen Marshall, Triassic Tusk Records.

“Right up there with Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Johnny Cash” (Sunday Telegraph)

“Middleton shows off impressive acoustic guitar skills oddly reminiscent of a young Paul Simon” (The Times)

“Achieves ABBA-like moments of pop greatness” (Mojo)

“Malcolm has a warm, immediately engaging voice that makes even his saddest songs sound strangely joyful” (The Guardian)
